    ->Blerk: That's a fantastic idea. Only one problem: she already knows I broke it, because I whinged massively when I did it.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid. If only I had your brains.

    ->ssuellid: Hmmm, batteries out, yes, few minutes, no. Will try that.

    It was some exceedingly cheap model from Korea, got it as a Christmas present a couple of years back. Only has 32mb capacity, so just enough for the commute to work and back, but hardly worth claiming for. If the reset doesn't work, I'll do the open heart surgery thing and then turn it into some installation art.

    The reset might work though, because when I first tried using it with my PC I remember I had a similar problem with one of the flash cards, but a few weeks later it worked.

    It's a bit weird, these things aren't supposed to happen with solid state, are they? And the funny thing is, the electrics seem to work fine in every other respect. The LCD works, as does the equalizer, volume control, etc. Anyway, yay for your dad - \o/

    Just popped down the shops to see how much a replacement would cost me.

    Too much. :(

    Well I think my mp3 player is well & truly f00ked, I tried resetting it, opened it up, poked around a bit, nothing looks as if it needs soldering, everything seems to work except it won't recognise the memory cards. :(

    Unless... can memory cards be rendered unusable by a hard jolt? Seeing as the electronics on the mp3 player itself all seem to be working fine. Only I'm loath to go and spend 40 quid on a new memory card just on the off-chance...

    Anyway, I've just gone and dropped 230 quid this lunchtime on a beautiful Minolta Dynax 5 SLR so no mp3 choons for me for a while, it would seem...
